All My Black People Wake Up

You are In a dream. NOT! All my people wake up. Your friend has just been shot. We need to stop the violence in the world. Because everyday a family loses a boy or girl. Black people wake up! and realize that selling and taking drugs is killing us. Slavery lasted long enough. Now we are still dying because we are doing drugs and getting shot up. Black people wake up! Because our friends are all dead or in jail. We are still in bondage because jail is hell. Black people wake up! Life is to short to be spending time in court paying child support. Take care of your kids or keep your legs closed. Abortion rates are going up. We need to realize our world is corrupt. WAKE UP! WAKE UP! WAKE UP! All my people wake up and face reality before it’s too late.
